Fancy a Shakira-themed browser?
As of today, you can get it from Brand Thunder, a company that creates themes to let people reskin their browsers to declare allegiance to bands, colleges, sports teams, and more. That’s because Brand Thunder just acquired its biggest rival, BrowserNation.
The acquisition means Brand Thunder has 25 percent more brands to tout, the company said today, giving it more clients in Europe and Asia and giving it a foothold in Latin America. Among its new clients are EMI, UMG Latin, and Epic Records.
“Given the changes in the once-stable browser market, it makes sense to combine efforts and deliver this powerful communication tool across all leading browser platforms,” said BrowserNation chief operating officer Romain Rousseau in a statement.
Brand Thunder offers skins for Mozilla
Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome. In addition to the themes it creates, it lets people make their own.
